Delay in appointing registrar of political parties violates law, says CAJ chairman

Commission on Administrative Justice chairman Otiende Amollo wants President Uhuru Kenyatta to appoint a substantive registrar of political parties before the general elections. The current office holder, Lucy Ndung’u, has been acting for four years since the enactment of the Political Parties Act in 2011.

“We humbly advise that the position be declared vacant as a matter of urgency to facilitate the recruitment of a substantive holder in line with the constitution,” Amollo said in an advisory to the President. He said the acting capacity by then then registrar was a temporary measure and part of the transition process so it was never intended to be perpetual. Amollo said the parties Act is trite law – that a person cannot hold office in that capacity ad infinitum. He said the delay in appointing a substantive registrar violates the law.
